Our Kenai Fjords and Resurrection Bay Half Day (4 hour) Tour will bring you to the best of Resurrection Bay and beyond, including being in Kenai Fjords National Park. Resurrection Bay tends to be calm, and has some of the most scenic vistas and best wildlife watching around. Some of the things you might see are whales (gray, humpback, minke, fin, etc.), orcas, porpoises, otters, seals, sea lions, jumping salmon, bears, mountain goats, eagles, puffins, other sea birds, glaciers, dramatic scenery, waterfalls, icebergs, and more!

We check out the alpine glaciers above the bay and also Bear Glacier, one of the glaciers in Kenai Fjords National Park. We also go to Cape Resurrection which is a major seabird colony in the area. We will pull into small, secluded coves and shut the engines down and enjoy nature at its finest. Check out a map of the area here.

Offered twice daily, this trip leaves at 8am and returns around noon and leaves at 1pm and returns around 5pm (but, if these times don’t work for you, just ask and we might be able to make it work!)
